Shakib Khan-starrer big budget film Password is dominating cinemas across the country, while two other Eid films Nolok and Abar Basonto are receiving critical acclaim.
Master maker Malek Afsari’s Password, which has been released at record 175 cinemas across the country, is attracting huge crowds, informed Bangladesh Film Exhibitors’ Association leaders.
Password, which revolves around an underworld don, who loses the password of his Swiss bank account, also stars Bubly, Misha Sawdagar, Amit Hasan, Nader Khan, Emon and others.
‘Password is a big budget film made specifically to entertain viewers on Eid. The film has so far been running successfully at 175 cinemas,’ said Iftekharuddin Nawshad, president of Bangladesh Film Exhibitors Association.
‘If the film continues to run for another one or two weeks, the producer will get a good turnover and cinema-owners will also be benefitted,’ added Nawshad.
Vice-president of the association Mia Alauddin informed that most shows since the first day of Eid-ul-Fitr are running houseful across the country.
However, viewers are showing less interest in evening and night shows on the days when there is a match of Bangladesh cricket team in the on-going Cricket World Cup.
Nolok, another Shakib Khan-starrer film, is next to Password in terms of turnover. The film revolves around stories of two families where family values and emotions are emphasised.
Besides Shakib Khan, the film, directed by Sakib Sonnet and Team, stars Bobby, Tariq Anam Khan, Omar Sunny, Nima Rahman, Indian actor Rajatava Dutt and others.
Nolok is running at around 74 cinemas.
Ananya Mamun’s Abar Basonto, which depicts late-life crisis through the story of a romantic affair between an elderly man and a young woman, has earned critical acclaim for its captivating story.
The film, starring Tariq Anam Khan, Orchita Sporshia, Imtu Ratish, Mukit Zakaria, Monira Mithu, Anondo Khaled, Nusrat Zahan Papia and others, is running at five cinemas in Dhaka and Chattogram.
